  1. A film that seems to truly reflect the Spirit of Christmas giving and community. Sounds exceptional! Hope I win a copy of this great DVD!

  2. Matthew West’s “Heart of Christmas” is playing on my iPod right now so I had to enter this giveaway. He also has a song called “One Last Christmas” that summarizes this story. I would love to own the movie!! The song is so moving. His Christmas CD is fantastic!

  3. Christina Enkler on

    Sounds like a wonderful family movie that we could share with all the cousins as well. How do we enter?

  4. I LOVE Christmas movies, and this would be especially great since we don’t have TV (our choice plus the challenge of life in the sticks), so I don’t get to see all the typical seasonal fare. Thanks for plugging this one. Win or not, it looks like a great choice!

  5. That sounds like a nice movie. We love to watch Christmas movies. This one actually hits close to home. When my niece was 3 years old she got lukemia, she almost died the day after Christmas. We thank God that she turned out to be our Christmas miracle baby. She is alive and well today.

  6. My family loves having movie nights, curling up together on the couch with popcorn and blankets! This looks like it would be a perfect movie for December and would be inspiring as well as entertaining!

  7. Kara Collins on

    I’m always looking for good movies to share with our children, ranging in age from 3 to 18years. This looks like a keeper…thanks for the giveaway!

  8. This looks like the perfect famiy movie for all ages, it’s been a long time since our family has sat down all together for an inspirational meaningful story.

  9. We need more wholesome movies that help us to grow into better human beings. Every story that can take us there is well worthwhile. For every good movie, there are so many that take unsuspecting viewers a whole different direction! Thank you for spreading the “good” news to all…
